Ride: Snowy Commute

January 3, 2014

in Seen on my commute, Semiotics of a Ride

Heavy snow and 4 degrees Fahrenheit this morning.  Very unusual combination for Boston.

No cars on the road.  Snow seems to slow everything down a bit.  So quiet.  Only the sound of snow fall and distant snow plows grinding out a path.

It’s so icy that I had to tack across the wind for most of the ride so I wouldn’t slide out.  Nella Neve is the perfect bike for today.  Studded tires and over-sized fenders are the words of the day.

Alone on the road.  #bestcommuteever
